Oklahoma City Thunder vs. Utah Jazz 4/21/18, Prediction & Odds

Oklahoma City Thunder vs. Utah Jazz 4/21/18, Prediction & Odds

"When you have somebody who's that focused, regardless of how he said it or what he said, he's serious about it. I think I just changed my mentality trying to be more aggressive and make some shots and made a run and it helps a lot when you're making shots and I feel great". Ricky Rubio had 26 points, 11 rebounds and 10 assists for Utah's first playoff triple-double in 17 years, and Donovan Mitchell added 22 points to lead the Jazz to a 115-102 win over the Oklahoma City Thunder and a 2-1 lead in their first-round series.

Westbrook probably would agree: He's 1 for 7 in this series with Gobert waiting at the rim for him. "They made some shots. Too comfortable", Westbrook said.

Now, we wait and see if Westbrook can hold true to his word of shutting down Rubio in Monday's Game 4.

Dwyane Wade led all scorers with 25 points off the bench for the Heat, who led by 12 points in the second half before letting a game they nearly certainly had to have slip away. We all have social media.

"Ironically, we've gotten worse as the series has gone on", he said.

"We all have phones, we all have social media so of course we're aware of it but what else was he supposed to say?"

The last time a Jazz player had completed a triple-double was quite literally 104 Westbrook triple-doubles ago, when now-retired power forward Carlos Boozer compiled one in 2008.




Rubio became the first Jazz player to earn a triple-double in the postseason since John Stockton did it in 2001.

"Game 1 wasn't what I expected as far as me shooting the ball", Rubio said. Houston leads two games to one.

While Sunday's practice was focused predominantly on physical recovery, the Jazz still did film study - as they always do. He had such a huge impact on this game with putting fouls on Steven Adams and just owning the paint on the defensive side.

OKC coach Billy Donovan said he wants his team to work possessions deeper into the shot clock and to stop bailing Utah's defense out with shots early in the clock. "Obviously, it's a physical game".

Thunder: Oklahoma City was outscored 30-14 after Adams sat down with his third foul early in the second quarter.

The Thunder, who led the league in steals this season (9.1 per game), obviously have something to do with that. Yet, the struggles have plagued him against Utah. I felt good about, but it wasn't going in.
